About Me

Welcome to Kaiser Permanente and my Web page. I look forward to meeting with you and helping to care for you if you need surgery.


I grew up in Southern California and attended UCLA. I went to medical school in Milwaukee but returned to warm Southern California for my residency and practice. My family is very medically oriented—my father was a surgeon and my mother and sister are registered nurses. My wife is a family physician at Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Medical Center. We have two children.

About my practice

I perform a broad range of general surgical procedures, including hernias, thyroid and parathyroid procedures, abdominal operations, breast operations, and routine rectal operations. My colleagues are an integral part of my practice, providing coverage for my patients and assistance or advice as needed.

How I thrive

I enjoy yoga, snow skiing, reading, and travel.
